In your photo, you are only using the 2-conductor lead from the receiver... you need to use a standard 3-conductor servo patch lead from the FastTrack/Data port.
It would be great if the 2 videos above could be translated or subtitled in English as they are excellent and invaluable for starting out with the Core.
Thank you. Michael
I've done a video to teach the basics of the CORE Flightmodes in English for the PowerBox Americas CORE video series. Hopefully it will be finished in editing and posted in the next few days.
Yes, this is what the ECU wants to see.... the trim change at low throttle stick is what tells it to be in start/run mode, or shutdown.
If you use the proper trim mode it will only move at the low throttle end of the scale.
Default is "Offset", you will want to change this to "Left" so that it does not affect the upper end of travel.
For the turbines I have setup so far this works well:
Set Trim Range to 25%
Set Steps to 50% -- 4 trim clicks up to full trim for start and run and 4 trim clicks down to shut off the turbine
Then "Learn RX" in your ECU
You have not done the flight modes update, so the menu is not fully functional. After the update the selected flight mode will appear in the center at the top of your screen.
As we showed in the video shared above -- No polyfuses... No Problem!
It is good to see your direct comparison. This extended travel is why the CORE default servo travel is set to 50% -- We don't want to over-drive your servos in existing setups.
The Mercury will use the same Jeti Switch with the black connector as the Royal given by Richard in the link above.
There is an update to add the UDI format, but it must sent in to be performed by PowerBox.
If you are in the US or Canada you can send it to us at the Power Box Americas branch;
if in Europe, Power Box Germany is where you will send it.
Fill out a service request, print it to include in the box, and ship to the proper address shown above the form.
The PowerBus system was designed to support the daisy-chain type setup you would need; With 2 regulators per side you still have power redundancy so there is no real disadvantage.
The receivers will take voltage from Bank B, so in my example they would be getting 7.4v from the RX1 and RX2 ports
You will be able to set for handling both 5.9 and 7.4 volts; the PowerBus and direct outputs have an A side and a B side that will maintain the separate voltages.
If you want to have all of your PowerBus connected servos at 5.9v you will need to use a single side of the PowerBus output with a splitter inline
to send one output to the wing splitter and the other to the tail hub.
This would free up the other bank to provide 7.4v to anything directly connected to this bank at the Royal servo outputs.
Bank A set to 5.9v for the PowerBus system
-you would need 2 splitters and 3 hubs using only the PowerBus A output side
Bank B set to 7.4v for directly connected HV servos, smoke, and lights.
You would need to use the USB adapter to reprogram the GPSII preset for Futaba for use with your Royal.
The Futaba version simply comes pre-set for Futaba telemetry use, there is no other difference in the unit. Simply connect to the Terminal and select the "iGyro / Mercury SRS / Royal SRS" Telemetry System option, and in GPS Configuration select the "optimized for speed" option below it. The changes are automatically saved so you simply disconnect the GPSII once the selections are made and it's ready to use with your Royal.
It is very simple, so you should have no trouble.
1-Open the Powerbox Termnial
2-Select "SparkSwitch Pro" button in the top section of the Terminal window
3-Connect the USB adapter to your PC
4-Connect a fully charged receiver battery to the "Battery" plug port on the SparkSwitch Pro
5-Connect the USB cable at the "Tele" plug port - mind the polarity
6-In the Terminal click "Continue"
---The program will have a short count-down and the options for the SparkSwitch Pro will load
7-Alter the Telemetry output setting, Voltage, and Bus channel settings as needed
8-Power off and remove the unit from the PC cable
---The settings are automatically saved.
Unfortunately the manual for the Sparkswitch Pro is incorrect, it is not currently programmable using the Bluecom. This will be coming in the future but is not currently working. You will need the 9020 USB Interface Adapter to change the settings. The website was updated with a note reflecting this in the description - https://www.powerbox-systems.c…geln/sparkswitch-pro.html
I have sent you an email.
You should have both units back soon.
Thank you Brian!
Sorry to hear this was the incorrect switch that was recommended.
We do have the 6100 Power Switch in stock here at PBSA and will get one sent out to you.
Please return the 6210 switch set with all the included packaging and manual.
If you have any questions give us a call, we're back in the office this week after our extended Holiday.
The One4Two connector set does not come with the servo plugs installed, only the MPX ends (DIN style is the One4Three). The Male and Female MPX plugs are on each end of 2 160cm leads. You will cut the leads at what ever length best fits your installation and install the JR servo connectors Male/Female as needed for servo and RX connection on the exposed ends.
